Series Review: :star:Bungou Stray Dogs:star:
By EscottVPC

You Can Watch The Trailer Here:…
Official Synopsis: For weeks, Atsushi Nakajima's orphanage has been plagued by a mystical tiger that only he seems to be aware of. Suspected to be behind the strange incidents, the 18-year-old is abruptly kicked out of the orphanage and left hungry, homeless, and wandering through the city.

While starving on a riverbank, Atsushi saves a rather eccentric man named Osamu Dazai from drowning. Whimsical suicide enthusiast and supernatural detective, Dazai has been investigating the same tiger that has been terrorizing the boy. Together with Dazai's partner Doppo Kunikida, they solve the mystery, but its resolution leaves Atsushi in a tight spot. As various odd events take place, Atsushi is coerced into joining their firm of supernatural investigators, taking on unusual cases the police cannot handle, alongside his numerous enigmatic co-workers.

Why Review This?
I recently finished this series, (Recently meaning a couple hours ago while on vacation). So for one, it's the freshest and most interesting anime on my mind right now. Another reason is that I want to come back to doing reviews starting off wth a hard hitter. It's a very recent anime, like this year anime, so give it a shot.

This 2016 released anime written by Kafka Asagiri was an attention grabber from the first episode. The series is based off of mystery and action while adding suspenseful and dramatic moments. To start; the characters were beautifully created all throughout the story. The good guys, the bad guys, even some people that don't really matter. Someone is always important in someway and you can't help connecting with these characters. The main characters were made relatable yet very individualistic which, to me as a writer, is the basis for an amazing story team. Everyone has there own powers and abilities, there own problems and backstories. Some of these backstories end up great; however, the one backstory that's pretty much it's own large fraction of this series, creates more importance and lesson within the story. The story becomes deeper with this backstory.
The first season of this mafia and town hero story creates the beginning to this anime. It 's the more fun loving and introductory side of this story. The second season opens up the story to the real seriousness between the organization and characters already presented. this second season creates an old fashion, mafia, cowboy bebop feel to the story. From there on, the planning, the action, the tear jerking drama, and the lessons taught are valuable pieces strung together to create Bungou Stray Dogs.

I find that the story may have been slightly rushed. It didn't seem bad at with its fast pace: however, I feel the story could have gotten a perfect if more spread out and detailed. Still bound to be a GOAT in my opinion:).
And of course, where can you watch this amazing anime? Well right here at kissanime of course!…

I probably should have asked permission to feature this art before I did but I was a bit packed on time so if you're on here and would me to remove your awesome work just note me and I'll be glad to do so:)
